Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

We can trust that God, the WayMaker, is always at work creating the life of our dreams, through ways we never would have dreamed for ourselves.

In a disorienting world, with obstacle after obstacle, and the landscape of our lives shifting in ways we never expected, we can trust that as we look to our Maker, the WayMaker, our road will lead us to arrive exactly where we always hoped it would, though maybe not at all in the way we imagined. And those dreams for our lives? They can still happen - in ways only He perfectly dreamed of. 

It is true: heartache, grief, suffering, obstacles, they all come in waves. There is no controlling life’s storms; there is only learning the way to walk through the waves. In WayMaker, best-selling author Ann Voskamp hands us a map that makes meaning of life, that shows the way through to the places we’ve only dreamed of reaching, by a way we never expected. Voskamp reveals how God is present in the totality of our lives, making a way:

  • for the marriage that seems impossible,
  • for the woman who longs for a child of her own,
  • for the parents who ache for the return of their prodigal,
  • for the sojourner caught between a rock and a hard place, and
  • for the wayfarer who feels as though there is no way through to her dreams.  

We can encounter the WayMaker in surprising ways and begin to see Him not only making poetry out of pain but working in every miraculous detail of our lives. Even now, the Way is making the way to walk through waves and into a life more deeply fulfilling than our wildest dreams.

Timely

God used Ann to deliver some truths in my life I was not aware of. He is truly The WayMaker. I’m going to listen to this book over and over as I know God isn’t finished guiding Ann to open my eyes and heart.

A light to my path

My heart tender by the recent loss of my Mama, and husband's struggle with depression, this story gave light, direction and often the release of tears to ease my grief filled heart. God's truth, His heart and His ways are articulated so powerfully. Thank you Ann. Hearing her read it made it personal and dug into places I needed reached.

This book can be a hard read for some. take it slow and really pay attention. read it more than once if you have too. it's well worth sticking it out to the end. Ann's story is beautiful.

Challenged.

My throat hurts from the bump rising and the tears swelling in my eyes, threatening and then fully overflowing.
This challenges me to lean in more and more into the “King”, as I choose to live in a daily “sacred” walk, through the Red Sea roads of life…the way of the suffering cross of Christ.
Thank you Ann.

Stunning

Ann Voskamp can envelop you in her words and sentences like no other author I’ve ever read. Her books are works of art and they are God breathed in every way. She bravely shares her story and invites the reader into her home, her marriage, her heart, her faith. A beautiful life giving book. I thought ‘One thousand Gifts’ had changed my life, but this book is just as glorious.
